What Changes Are Required To Get Innovation In Your Organization?

November 8, 2017 — Posted by Guy Beaver

Innovation is difficult to create. It is a problem with unknown output that must be converged upon, not calculated. 

This is not easy, especially when the system inputs and operating environment tend to be rapidly changing and unpredictable (e.g. What technology are we going to use? How complex of an integration is required? How long will it take to find an acceptable solution? How much will it cost? What will be the return?)

What we are defining is a problem best solved through empirical processes; trial & error, experimentation, learning loops.

Scaled Distractions

November 7, 2017 — Posted by Guy Beaver

Instead of reacting...choose to respond.

At a personal level, you need calm focus to recognize distractions. Without this awareness, reactions can dominate choices and take you away from goals. If instead you have the space in your busy mind to observe when you are reacting, you can choose when and what an appropriate response is and stay focused on your higher priority goals.
